Oh, I'm flummoxed!

texdoc fixme does not pull up the package documentation

~> texdoc -l fixme
 1 /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/doc/context/third/fixme/fixme.pdf
   = Examples of use
 2 /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/doc/latex/fixme/fixme.pdf
   = Package documentation
 3 /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/doc/latex/fixme/README
   = Package Readme
 4 /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/doc/latex/fixme/NEWS
 5 /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/doc/latex/fixme/THANKS

Item 2, of course is what I want. But since I usually
access texdoc via the "Show help for package ..." menu
item in TeXShop, I would really like to have texdoc find
the correct package documentation.

I tried adding a local configuration information in

I tried many different formulations, but you know (since
I'm writing to this list) none worked. What really ought
to work is a configuration file containing the single

alias fixme = latex/fixme/fixme

but that did not work for me. My last attempt contained
the lines (and *only* the lines)

adjscore(fixme) /context/ = -1000
alias(200) fixme = /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/doc/latex/fixme/fixme.pdf

You can see I'm getting frustrated. What am I doing wrong?
Or is this a bug?

Thanks for the help,
